TRANSFORMED TO REVEAL JESUS

Jan 18, 2024

DAY SIXTEEN OF FASTING

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Every day should draw you nearer to the Master as long as you are still here on earth until your life becomes like His; the nearer you draw to God, the more you become like Him.

As much as God lives in us, transformation does not cease. So, the more we are yielded to His transforming hands, the more the work of the Holy Spirit that is done in our lives and our yielding must continue until our lives become a reflection of Jesus.

So, always remember that the ultimate goal for your existence here on earth is to reveal Jesus; to be conformed to the image of God and come into the fullness of His stature. Romans 8:29, Ephesians 4:10-16

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but the I shall know just as I also am known.

What you see is very important in your transformation.

In Genesis 31:1-12, God gave Jacob a dream and it is what he saw that transferred his uncle’s wealth to Him.

Genesis 1:26-28 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His [own] image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them…

After God created man, He rested because He knew He had someone to take over; man is the continuation of what God wants to do. Genesis 2:1-3.

Remember, man is God’s system of intervention on the earth. You are a system and an answer to someone’s prayer and that is why your transformation is key. 

Who is the image of God?

We are not the image of God, Jesus is. This means that you and I were created in the image of Jesus; that is why we must reveal Him. Colossians 1:15

Read Genesis 2:7

Man could do nothing until the breath of God entered Him. After God formed him out of the dust, He filled him and released him to go and accomplish His Agenda.

God can only fill what He has transformed; that is why He told Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house.

Jeremiah 18:1-11.. [3-4] Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; SO HE MADE IT AGAIN into another vessel, as it SEEMED GOOD to the potter to make….

God will never get tired of making you again. He has power over you: He has you in His hands and He will do whatever He needs to do to fulfill His purpose in your life. He will continue forming you until you become complete. Romans 9:21

Unfortunately, this God does not force Himself on you, it is up to you to allow Him to continue making you. If you tell Him to stop, He does. So, the more stubborn you are, the longer you will stay on the wheel.

When God is done forming you, He breathes into you and it is with that breath that you begin to function (become transformed) in accordance with His purpose.

1 Samuel 17:40 Then he took his staff in his hand; and he chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag, in a pouch which he had, and his sling was in his hand. And he drew near to the Philistine.

You can be usable but still not be used; the five smooth stones were available for use but only one was used.

So, when you are smooth all over, don’t lift your head but rather remember that it is God’s mercy and grace that qualified you for there are many people who are better than you but God chose you in His mercy and grace to His qualification and He is continuously transforming you that you may reveal Him to all around you. Romans 9:16 AMPC, Ecclesiastes 9:11 NLT

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
